Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

What is the recommended serving for 13lb and 15lb cats that are in the process of losing weight?
Answer by ChewyNov 17, 2018
These treats contain approximately 124 calories per ounce. It is generally recommended that treats are only given as 10% of the pets daily caloric intake.

How many carbs ? What percentage?
Answer by ChewyAug 31, 2022
All Vital Essentials cat treats have a carbohydrate content of less than 1%.

are these a soft treat looking for treats my ferrets can yry
Answer by ChewyOct 17, 2020
Freeze-dried is when all moisture or water content has been removed, these treats will have a crispy, airy texture.

does the treats smell like fish? Probably a dumb question, but thought I'd ask, my family can't stand the smell of fish.
Answer by ChewyMay 09, 2019
These cat treats would have a fishy smell to them, however the severity of the smell may differ per pet parent.

Salmon Freeze-dried treats

A couple of the group loves these. Some had to sniff and check out, but decided they were safe to eat.

Cat Treats

I feel like I am giving our cat something healthy when I add a few of these to her temptations treats once a day. At first she wasn't too sure about them, but now she goes for these first before the temptations that I give her.

Fresh fish

My cat loves only a special brand. I can barely give them to him.

Extruded Salmon Puree

The product photo did not quite show that this freeze dried salmon is actually extruded/pelleted ground up salmon. The ingredients only show salmon - but why not freeze-dry chunks of salmon, instead of pureeing it and making pellets? I wonder if there are other ingredients that are not reported. My cat won't touch it. My cat loves fish. In the past, I have only purchased real identifiable freeze dried salmon chunks. But since covid, it is hard to find in stock anywhere. So I thought I would give this a try. The lower price should have been an indicator. This review is pointing out that this freeze-dried salmon is actually pelletized puree and not pure freeze-dried chunks of salmon, that you would find in the more expensive name brand products.

Nope not at all

No one liked either kind of these I purchased...neither flavor...way way to hard... Even broken up nope...waste of money, but I donated they to cats that have nothing...since they were new and hopefully they can enjoy them. I never return anything regardless , I donate all good, treats, ( unless not safe, bones in it, otherwise unfit).

Picky Kitty

I ordered a couple of bags and really thought my guy would like the Salmon. He was not having any of it though. The unopen bags are going to the animal shelter. I know there is a cat out there that will love the salmon.

Not interested.

Neither of my girls seem to care for this flavor. I thought they would love it since they both eat anything that’s seafood. Not the case here.
